CASTLES & CAKE

Castles, Fish & Chips and Cake is essentially the name of the game with this post but let’s stick with the alliterative title! This post was a day out that turned out to be brilliantly British. I spent a Saturday afternoon hanging around Warwick which is well known for being home of Warwick Castle. Our first port

A LUSH EASTER

Easter weekend means taking it easy with lots of chill out time and a bit of a pamper! Everyone needs a little ‘Me Time’ and I’ll be trying out some new Lush goodies. Truth be told, I’ve only ever tried a lip scrub from Lush and I’ve never ever used any of their other products, let alone their rather

SNAPSHOT

Oh it’s very almost the weekend! I had fully intended to blog about something else entirely but on the way home, I decided against my original plan and use up some of the photos that are sitting in my phone’s photo album. I take so many photos only for most of the pics never to

HONG KONG 2013

So here we are, the first of my HK posts! I have to admit, I haven’t taken very many photos this trip as I was too busy spending time with my family and I feel that I always snap the same pictures during my annual visits. Perhaps I’ll make more of an effort next year

ONE LOVELY DAY

Here is one of those photos-of-my-day posts which I must get into the habit of doing more. Monday was a gorgeously sunny bank holiday which means a day off! My first port of call was for a haircut at Umberto Giannini (Selfridges, Birmingham). Claire has been my stylist for 4+ years and she’s awesome. That

ONE LAZY SNOWY SATURDAY

Don’t worry – this is about all the snow you’ll get to see in this blog post this weekend. I ventured outside for about a minute today and spent most of the day indoors and judging from these photos below, getting ready to hibernate! I contemplated against posting yet another food post after the cakey
